1202 We do not have a maiden name for Martha J. Simpson. From the 1910 US Census it was learned her father was born in Alabama and her mother was born in Texas, and she was listed as being born in Louisiana. The 1930 US Census reflects her father was born in Northern Ireland and her mother was born in Texas. Simpson, Martha J (I536)
 
1203 We know very little about Bonnie Mareane (Marine, Marane) other than she was born to Mark Mareane and Margaret "Maggie" Bayette circa 1878. She was later found residing in the Territory of Washington at Seattle with Mark and Margaret Looney and was listed as a resident in their boarding house at the time of his death in 1899. It is unclear what happened to Margaret Bayette -- if she died or was divorced from Mark Mareane after 1880. What happened between the US Census of 1880 when Mark and Bonnie were living with the Bayette family on Columbia Street in Elmira, NY and 1889 when they are found living in Washington may never be fully known. It is clear the dates of birth of the Maggie Mareane living with Mark Mareane in Seattle, Washisngton was five years different from Maggie Bayette. It is speculated that his wife Bayette died as Bonnie was we found her living with her father Mark and his new wife Maggie [Looney] Schlosser Marean in Seattle in the late 18880s. The oldest of Bonnie's step sisters was Marinda Mareane, who was born in Owego, NY in 1885 so it is probable Mark and Margaret Looney were living in Owego, NY at the time. The other step sisters Myrtle Mareane was born in Seattle about 1889 and Carolyne was born at Seattle in 1891. It would appear that Mark Mareane was living in Owego at the time Marinda Mareane's birth, so something happened between the census of 1880 and 1885. The first reference to the Mareane family in Washington was the Census of April 1892 for King County, Washington. They were listed as follows:

Listed as Seattle, 9th Ward
Mark Mareane - 56
Margaret Mareane - 37
Bonnie Mareane - 14
Marinda Mareane - 7
Myrtle Mareane - 4
Caroline Mareane - 1

There was no death record located in Elmira, NY for Maggie Bayette because most of those records were destroyed in the June flood of 1972 and New York State did not start recording those records until the early 1900s.

Bonnie married George W. Miracle in Washington circa 1893 and was residing at her father's boarding house in 1899 when her father was killed in a construction accident. There was no reference to George Miracle at that time so it is speculated the couple was divorced. Little is known what happened to George Miracle but a 1920 US Census places him in Seattle married to a woman by the name of Margaret. This person appears to be the same individual, so he was presumably divorced from Bonnie at this time.

An affidavit signed by Anna (nee Looney) Powell in support of a guardianship matter for the Mareane children, noted that a half sister, Mrs. John Holliday was residing in Seattle, Washington in 1900. It appears that Bonnie Married John Holliday circa 1896-1897 based on the birth year of their daughter. The 1910 US Census records Bonnie Holliday at 221 10th Ave, Seattle, Washington with her daughter Madeline. Bonnie was listed as married, but John Holliday was not recorded at the residence. A 1920 US Census referenced a Bonnie Holliday residing in Los Angeles on South 8th Street along with a Madeline Holliday, age 23, presumably Bonnie's daughter. Madeline was referenced as born in Washington in 1897, and Bonnie was listed as divorced. The 1930 US Census recorded Bonnie Holliday residing at 1355 S. Hope Street, Los Angeles, CA but Madeline was living in a different apartment under the name of Madeline Brooks, and she was listed as divorced.

It is interesting to note that Bonnie was listed with her three step sisters as surviving family members in the Mark Mareane probate estate records, but when Margaret Mareane died approximately six months later, the three step sisters were listed as the only surviving family members of Margaret Mareane. This would seem to confirm that Bonnie was actually born to a different mother than her step sisters (the guardianship affidavit also confirmed she was a half-sister to the other Mareane daughters). Her three half sisters were sent back to Elmira, New York after their mother's death. Martin Powell in Elmira, NY was listed as the guardian for Bonnie's three step sisters but there was no mention of Bonnie in Margaret's estate records. Bonnie's death record was found listing her death in Los Angeles, California 28 February 1959. That record confirmed her date of birth as 28 April 1879 in New York State and her name at the time of death as Bonnie Marane Fudge. The death record reflects her mother's name was unknown, but Mark Mareane was listed as her father and her husband's name was John F. Fudge. She died at the Gramercy Sanitarium and she had been residing in California for 45 years so she probably moved there in 1914. Her residence was listed as 1401 Alvarado Terrace in Los Angeles and the informant for the death record was a Madeline Brooks (probably Bonnie's daughter Madeline Holliday) of the same address. Contact with the Inglewood Park Cemetery, which is in a suburb of Los Angeles, confirmed that Bonnie was cremated there but her ashes were not placed at that cemetery. There was no record as to who took the ashes. The funeral director Utter McKinley - Wilshire, appears to be out of business as of 2010. The cause of death was listed as circulatory failure (2 hours), coronary thrombosis (2 months), and arteriosclerosis (20 years) . A contributing cause of death was senility, so she was probably in a nursing home or mental facility at the time of her death. It does not appear the Gramercy Sanitarium is still in existence.

Bonnie M. Fudge was located with her husband John E. Fudge in the 1942 Los Angeles County Voter Registration records residing at 1220 S. Harvard Blvd. She was listed as a housewife and John was listed as a newspaper man. They were listed as registered Republicans through 1950 when John is not listed. John's occupation was also listed as a linotyper.

John was also located in the LA County Voter Registration in 1922 residing at 123 N. Grand Ave. In 1924 he was listed as residing at 916 W. 10th and in 1926 at 609 Peco. Bonnie was not found in those years, because she was found in Los Angeles as Mrs. Holliday in 1920 and 1930.

1217 WilkesW&G My grandfather was Sidney Lee Patterson. His father was William Bartholomew Patterson who was married to Louisiana (Lousannah Willis). Just really getting started with my research, but have pulled a good bit of information. My father was Broadus Lee Patterson, son of Sidney Lee and Anne L. Kitchens Patterson from Gray, Georgia. I was always told growing up that my Dad did not have any information on my Great Grandfather as he had left his wife and disappeared in my grandfather's early years. Sidney and Annie had two children (my father and one sister, Hazel Patterson Norman). Both of them are deceased. Broadus Lee Patterson is burried in Clarke County, Athens, Georgia. Hazel is burried in Bibb County, Macon, Georgia. I am currently not a subscriber to Ancestry as I had started research and then stopped for awhile. I hope to get back into it soon.

1218 WILLIAM BARTHOLOMEW PATTERSON
Born December 26, 1861
Died May 6, 1936

By Patrick A. Patterson

Family history dictated that William Patterson was born in Ireland and emigrated to the United States through the port of Savannah, Georgia. He worked his way across to the Nacogdoches, Texas area where he worked for the railroad. This information was partially correct. A notation in the 1910 US Census confirms that he was a resident of Nacogdoches, Texas as of April 20, 1910 at West Pellar Street. His listed age then was forty-eight years, and he was single. His occupation was inventoried as a rail car inspector. The census notes that he was born in Georgia as were his parents.

He was believed married to EVA RUSK who was fancied to be a direct descendant of an individual killed at the Alamo in 1836. This information was later found to be partially incorrect. This information came from the former wife of Vernon Lee Patterson, my mother. She recalled this information from conversation with Vernon and his brothers and sister. Actually, Vernon's brother William Joseph married a woman by the name of EVA DELL BABER. Vernon Lee Patterson was the youngest son born to William Bartholomew Patterson and Susan Jane Simpson. This son was born in Lufkin, Texas, February 28, 1924 to W. B. PATTERSON and S. J. PATTERSON although he was listed in the County Records as "baby boy Patterson." From the dates, it would appear that William Patterson was approximately sixty-three years of age when he had his last child. Vernon Patterson was approximately thirteen years of age when the elder Patterson passed on 6 May 1936. Mrs. Patterson was some years younger than William Patterson on their marriage and it is speculated that she was eighteen years old when they were joined and Mr. Patterson was forty-eight years of age.

William Patterson was described by his youngest son as a large man with bright red hair, and wore a red, handlebar mustache. Vernon recalled that his mother always called her husband Mr. Patterson and never referred to him by his first name. Mr. Patterson worked for the railroad for years until a bitter labor strike ended his employment. He was devoutly loyal to the union, and refused to have anything further to do with several close friends who crossed the picket lines. The family had a difficult time financially after Mr. Patterson refused to return to work for the railroad. At the time of his death in 1936, his employment was listed as a carpenter.

A check of Nacogdoches history revealed one individual by the name of JACKSON J. RUSK who died at the Alamo on March 6, 1836. He was listed as a native of Ireland, and a resident of Nacogdoches, Texas. His rank was private. Information provided by my mother suggested that in the late 1940's or early 1950's the family was contacted by unknown individuals and were asked to provide any memorabilia that they possessed concerning the RUSK that died at the Alamo. The items were turned over to these people and no further information was ever received. The items were to be placed in a museum but it was never learned if the artifacts were placed on display and where. It was later determined that a relative of SUSAN J. SIMPSON fought under General Sam Houston at San Jacinto in 1836. The information concerning the relative that fought at the Alamo may have been confused with this story. I recalled when I was approximately eight years of age I went with my father and mother to the San Jacinto monument. Inside the monument is a large plaque on the wall with names of those who fought at the battle. I remember my father pointing to a name on the plaque and explaining to me that this person was my relative. Unfortunately, because of my age, I forget the name. When I revisited the memorial in 1993, I found the name JEREMIAH W. SIMPSON on the plaque that my father had pointed to years earlier. I also found that there were items on display there which were donated by MRS. JACK PATTERSON. I believe this is my aunt who was married to my father's brother. I have not been able to confirm this information as I haven't yet received a response to my inquiry from the curator at that museum.

It would appear that the Eva Rusk that my mother referred to could not be a direct, immediate family descendant from the Irishman killed at the Alamo. A complete search of census data failed to reveal anyone by the name of EVA RUSK in Texas during this period. I would suspect that Eva Baber who was the woman who married my father's brother, and this information became convoluted over the years.

In the late 1820's Nacogdoches was one of only three Texas towns that had emerged from the Spanish colonial era, and was considered impoverished and disgraceful to Mexican visitors from the south. It was considered the gateway to western expansion from the Southern United States into Texas. During the Andrew Jackson Presidential administration, Texas was being sought after to be annexed into the Union as he had done with Florida. It is logical to assume that any person by the name of Rusk from the Nacogdoches area of Texas is probably related in some fashion, especially around the 1836 period.

A review of railroads passing through the Nacogdoches and Lufkin, Texas areas showed three railroad companies that William Patterson possibly worked for in that area. They were the Texas and Pacific Railroad, the Missouri Pacific Railroad, and the St. Louis Southwestern Railway. The latter was called the "Cotton Belt" and portions of the railroad still run through the Tyler and Lufkin, Texas areas today. Texas was expanding at the turn of the century and Lufkin and Nacogdoches were prime lumber producing locations. As a result many small railroads sprang up to service the shipment of lumber from the mills. When the mills closed, so did many of the independent railroads.

In December of 1993 a thorough search to verify the family history information was initiated. My wife and I traveled to the Lufkin and Nacogdoches, Texas areas in search of family history. Surprisingly, we confirmed that my grandmother's maiden name was not Rusk, but was Susan Jane Simpson. Susan Jane Simpson was located in the 1900 US Census in Nacogdoches, Texas at age eight years, daughter of JOHN R. SIMPSON (1851) and JANE SIMPSON (1872). There were six other siblings, MARTHA E. SIMPSON (1889), HANNAH R. SIMPSON (1894), CLYDE P. SIMPSON (daughter-1896), LULA P. SIMPSON (1899) and WILLIAM R. SIMPSON (1879). It would appear that JOHN R. SIMPSON had been married previously because of the age of his oldest son. A review of the 1910 US Census revealed that JOHN R. SIMPSON had married at that time to CORNELIA J. SIMPSON (age 39) and had two additional daughters, JESSIE J. SIMPSON (age 6), and FANNIE F. SIMPSON (age 2). Son WILLIAM R. and daughter MARTHA E. were no longer listed at the residence. Later interviews with relatives revealed that Cornelia Jane Simpson was referred to as Jane or Jannie. There were a total of eight daughters from this marriage. John Randolph Simpson actually was married previously to Cornelia Jane, to one Julia Caknog and had seven sons as a result of that marriage.

In 2013 I finally sorted out the Simpson family connection to early Texas history and the Battle of San Jacinto. My mother's recollection was fairly close to what I discovered although she had it a little mixed up. The Rusk name was connected to the Battle of San Jacinto, Texas, not the Alamo. Susan Jane Simpson's mother was Cornelia Jane Fussell. One of Cornelia's sisters was named Paralee Fussell. Somewhere around 1896 Paralee Simpson married one John Lawrence Rusk in Nacogdoches, Texas. John Rusk was the grandson of David Rusk. David Rusk [b. abt 1814, d. 1877] and his brother Thomas Jefferson Rusk [b. 1808, d. 1857] emigrated from Charleston, South Carolina to Texas in 1836 and both took part in the Battle of San Jacinto where Mexican General Santa Anna's forces were defeated winning independence for Texas. David Rusk became the first Sheriff in what would become the State of Texas at Nacogdoches. His brother Thomas became a general in Sam Houston's army and the first Secretary of War in the Republic of Texas. Thomas would later serve as a Justice of the Texas Supreme Court, US Congress and US Senate representing Texas. He held other high offices in Texas until his death. When Thomas Rusk's wife died, he was so grief stricken he committed suicide. David lived out his life and he and his wife are buried at Nacogdoches, Texas. [NOTES ON DAVID RUSK: David Rusk (b. Abt. 1820, d. September 01, 1877) David Rusk (son of John Rusk and Mary Sterritt) was born Abt. 1820 in SC, and died September 01, 1877 in Orange Co., TX. He married Elizabeth Reid on January 26, 1843, daughter of John Reid. Notes for David Rusk: Various sources show David Rusk's birth date to be 1807, 1814, and 1817. The 1860 Census lists him as being 48, which would make his date of birth about 1811. "The Heroes of San Jacinto" shows that David was Sheriff of Nacogdoches county from 1840 to 1846. Yet another source, "Towering Texan" by Cleburne Huston puts him at "barely 20" when he became sheriff. If these sources are correct, David would have been born in 1820, not 1811. According to Lois Foster Blount in "The Southwestern Historical Quarterly, "Vol. XXXIV, No. 3, January 1931, page 191, David Rusk was "a tall youth of nineteen..." in 1836. This would made the date of his birth Abt 1817. The following is from "The Heroes of San Jacinto": "Rusk, David. Brother to Thomas J. Rusk; emigrated to Texas in January 1836. Service Record No. 1233 discloses that Mr. Rusk served in Captain Hayden Arnold's company from April 6 to June 6, 1836. He re-enlisted May 8 in Captain Arnold's company. He was sheriff of Nacogdoches county, 1840--46. He married Miss Elizabeth Reid at Nacogdoches, January 26, 1843. Mr. Rusk was a member of the Texas Veterans Association; died in Orange county, September 11, 1877." There is a bit confusion regarding the period David served as Sheriff of Nacogdoches. According to family lore and verified by "The Bicentennial commemorative History of Nacogdoches, "published by the Nacogdoches Jaycees in 1976, David served as sheriff from 1836 to May, 1847. My grandfather, William Henry Rusk, frequently related to seeing him ride up on his horse and appearing as a "giant." Following is a quote from Ms. Bobi Rusk, widow of James Cullen Rusk (b. 4/21/1935, d. 8/19/1999), a descendant of David):"... I have seen and held the muslin shirt and pants that belonged to David Rusk, and if you have heard or read that he was a large man, believe it. I am 5'10" and I could hold his shirt at my eye level and it drug the ground. I can remember my husband's dad, whom we called Keith, saying that David was uncomfortable with his height of 8' and always told anyone asking, that he was 7'12"." David married Elizabeth Reid on 1/26/1843. Elizabeth was born in 1822 and died 12/16/1908. They had ten children: John, Mary Jane, Elizabeth Ann, Ophelia, David Franklin, Charles H., Harriet T., Martha H., Nicholas and William H. Notes on death of David Rusk: "(Thomas J.) Rusk was survived by his five children and his brother, David. The latter died in 1908." Mary Whatley Clarke "Thomas J. Rusk, Soldier-Statesman-Jurist", (Jenkins Publishing Company, The Pemberton Press, Austin and New York, 1971) pp 209.

David Rusk, soldier and law-enforcement officer, was the son of John and Mary (Sterritt) Rusk. He and his brother Thomas Jefferson Rusk immigrated to Texas in 1836 from Clarksville, Georgia, and settled in Nacogdoches. He enlisted on April 6, 1836, as a private in Capt. Hayden Arnold's First Company of Col. Sidney Sherman's Second Regiment, Texas Volunteers, and fought in the battle of San Jacinto. Rusk was five times elected sheriff of Nacogdoches County, first in 1837 and last on March 2, 1845. In 1859-60 he succeeded William R. Scurry as acting commissioner of the boundary survey. Rusk was married to Elizabeth Reid. He died in Orange County on September 11, 1877.

Published by the Texas State Historical Association.] The connection to Texas independance was by marriage through the Fussell family.

A marriage license was located at Nacogdoches, Texas confirming that WILLIAM B. PATTERSON and MISS SUSIE SIMPSON were married there June 5, 1910. Unfortunately, no additional birth records for other siblings other that VERNON LEE PATTERSON could be located. No records of property transfers or ownership could be located at either Lufkin or Nacogdoches, Texas. The first record located at Nacogdoches, Texas concerning a W. B. PATTERSON was in the history of the Melrose United Methodist Church that listed a W. B. PATTERSON as a "presiding elder" from 1887 through 1889. This church is only a short distance outside Nacogdoches, Texas. [I don't believe this individual is identical to William B. Patterson from Wilkinson County, GA]

WILLIAM B. PATTERSON and SUSAN J. SIMPSON had four children, WILLIAM Joseph who married a woman by the name of EVA DELL BABER. JACK was married four times, one of which was IRIS CHUMLEY, PATRICIA (actually Edna Earl Patterson) married Charles. D. YATES, and VERNON LEE PATTERSON married EUGENIA CLAIR MARKS. [my mother]

WILLIAM B. PATTERSON died on May 6, 1936 at 10:30 PM at California, Texas. His cause of death was listed as a heart condition (arterial sclerosis). His place of birth was listed as Georgia as was his father's, WILLIAM PATTERSON. His mother's maiden name was listed as "unknown." He was interred at the Gann Cemetery near Lufkin, Texas. His age was listed as seventy-four years, four months, and eleven days. A search of the Gann Cemetery failed to locate the grave of WILLIAM B. PATTERSON. It was apparent that many graves were unmarked. Attempts were made to locate the grave and mark it with a suitable headstone, but the exact grave could not be located. During the great depression, many people couldn't afford to place headstones on graves, and often used wooden plaques or crosses. The elements would have taken those markers years ago.

Having very little information concerning my grandfather and his family, I set out to gather as much knowledge as possible. Regarding the the information that my grandfather came to the United States from Ireland, I could only assume was incorrect based upon the U.S. Census data that I had discovered. I would later learn that his family did emigrate from Scotland to Nothern Ireland. [The Scotish that emigrated to Ireland are referred to as Ulster Scotish not Scotch Irish as they were Protestant and from Northerland Ireland.] The United States Census data from 1910 indicated that he was born in the State of Georgia as were his parents. The information supplied by his wife Susan Simpson at the time of William B. Patterson's death listed his father's name as William Patterson and his middle name was Bartholomew. In that William B. Patterson was born on December 26, 1861, it is likely that his father William Patterson fought for the State of Georgia during the Civil War. I would later determine that William B. Patterson's father's name was Joseph Denton Patterson and that his grandfather's name was William. His grandfather, William Craven Patterson, Sr. and five of his seven sons fought for the Confederacy during the Civil War. Joseph Denton Patterson was killed during the Battle of Vicksburgh, MS and William Craven Patterson, Sr. was killed during the Battle of Jonesboro, GA in defense of Atlanta. The middle name is somewhat confusing because I have seen it listed as Barkaloo. Lt. Col. Barkaloo commanded the 57th Georgia Infantry in which the Patterson family fought, so it would make sense that Joseph Denton Patterson would give this name to his first born son. [See: Walker, S. (2005). Hell's Broke Loose in Georgia : Survival In A Civil War Regiment. Athens, University of Georgia Press, a history of the 57th Georgia Infantry during the Civil War: Davidson, V. (1930). History of Wilkinson County [Georgia]. Macon, GA, Clearfield Company, Inc.; and Groom, W. (2009). Vicksburg, 1863. New York, Alfred A. Knopf]. In reviewing the 1870 US Census Nancy Jenkins Patterson is living with her father Thomas Jenkins and her son is listed as "Bartlew". [This would make sense because Joseph Denton Patterson was killed in 1863 and Nancy was not yet married to her second husband Richard J. Batchelor until 19 Oct 1868. The 1880 US Census clearly shows William B. Patterson living with the Batchelor family.]

Hostilities broke out between the North and the South on April 12, 1861 with South Carolina seceding from the Union and firing upon Federal troops in Fort Sumter. Assuming that the Patterson family lived in the State of Georgia at the opening of the Civil War, it is likely that William Patterson volunteered for service in that state. With the close proximity to the beginning of the Civil War to William B. Patterson's birth, the fact that both his parents were born there as was he, it is safe to assume that they were residence of Georgia at the beginning of the war, and probably a number of years hence.

A check of the Index for the 1860 Federal Census of Georgia disclosed twenty W. or William Pattersons listed as residence in the state that year. They are as follows:

W. H. PATTERSON UNION COUNTY
Blairsville, Georgia

W. R. PATTERSON DALLAS COUNTY

A 1994 inquiry with the Georgia Department of Human Resources, Vital Records Unit, Atlanta, Georgia disclosed that the state did not start keeping vital records until 1919. Further birth inquiries would have to be made at each county to verify the birth of William B. Patterson, and his father William.

On December 30, 1995, I was able to visit with the descendants of Hannah Simpson, the sister of my grandmother, Susan Jane Simpson. Hannah had a daughter by the name of Hazel Elesta (Doll) on 8/30/1911. Adrien Robert Caudle is a descendant of Hanna and is a first cousin, once removed, from Patrick A. Patterson.

On 7/28/2001, located a reference to W. B. Patterson dated 7/19/1923, in a publication found at the Los Angeles Public Library. The History of Angelina County, Texas, 1846-1991, indicated that a W. B. Patterson assisted in the building of the C. R. L. Vawter Evangelistic Company building at Herndon and Moore St., Lufkin, Texas. [I have never determined if this person was identical to William B. Patterson]

There have been a number of Pattersons located in Georgia, before and after the Civil War. The only William B. Patterson found was in Wilkinson County, Georgia listed as follows:

William Batchelor 2
William B. Patterson 18

A review of the Richard J. Bachelor family reflectes the maiden name of his wife Nancy J. (Jenkins). Jenkins married Joseph D. Patterson who was killed at the Battle of Vicksburg, MS. The 1880 Census identifies William B. Patterson as aboarder and not brother-in-law of the head of household, so we can't determine from the census data if William was actually related to Nancy Bachelor. It is probable that he is the son of Nancy Jenkins and Joseph Patterson, who were married April 1860. William was born 26 Dec 1861. Civil War hostilities began on April 12, 1861. Joseph Patterson mustered into the Confederate army 10/22/1861 and was killed January 1863. From the census date it appears Nancy and Bachelor were married after the Civil War and they had a number of children in the household 1880. It appears Richard Bachelor was previously married to Adaline Willis [b. 1842, d. unknown] on 7 June 1860 and both are listed in the 1860 US Census in Ramah District in Wilkinson County, GA. I also found Adaline Willis in the 1850 US Census at age 8 living with her father Thomas and mother Elizabeth Willis. It appears Adaline and Richard J. Batchelor were divorced prior to 1864 in that I found records reflecting Adeline married a W. H. H. Bailey on 27 Aug 1964. Richard Batchelor and Nancy Jenkins Patterson married on 18 Oct 1868. The Willis family lived in close proximity to the Batchelor and Patterson families in Georgia. One census disclosed a Louisiana Willis [believed to be identical to Louisiana Willis and the same family Mr. Batchelor had married into] who I believe William B. Patterson married somewhere around 1880. I find both Louisiana or Lou and William B. Patterson in the census data up to 1900. The 1910 Census disclosed Lou Patterson with her children, but William B. Patterson was not present. The 1920 Census shows Mrs. Patterson as a widow. I placed William B. Patterson in Nacogdoches, TX during the 1910 Census and he marries Susan Jane Simpson that same year shortly after the census was taken. William B. Patterson was 48 years of age and Susan Jane Simpson was 18 years of age at the time of their marriage.

Nancy died in Wilkinson County in 1929 - Nancy J. Patterson Batchelor, 23 Jan 1845 - 6 Feb 1929, white, buried Batchelor Cemetery (1929 Deaths Wilkinson County Georgia - http://www.georgiagenealogy.org/wilkinson/1929deaths.html). I located notes from Wilkinson County Historical Society that gave some history of the William Craven Patterson family (noted below). I would later locate the graves of William Craven Patterson, Sr. and Joseph Denton Patterson in the Patterson Family Cemetery near Ivey, GA. The cemetery is located on the property that was the farm owned by William Craven Patterson, Sr. I also located remnants of the old Civil War era Patterson home a short distance from the family cemetery.

Notes from Wilkinson Historical Society:

WILLIAM CRAVEN PATTERSON

William Patterson, the father of William Craven
Patterson, was born in North Carolina, November 6, 1813,
was married to Elizabeth Denton in 1835. He moved first
to Union County, Georgia, living there until 1858, when
he moved to Milledgeville, Ga. After living there a short
time he moved to Stevens Pottery and a short time later
to Wilkinson County, where he was living at the beginning
of the War Between the States. He with five of his sons
enlisted; and he was killed at Jonesboro, Ga., Sept. 1,
1864, his wife dying with grief in November, following.

Their children were: Mary, Joseph, John, William, Samuel,
James, Nancy, Alfred, Carie, Jefferson, Silas, Eliza,
Andrew, Reuben and Ivey. [Joseph was Joseph Denton
Patterson and Mary would eventually marry an individual
by the name of Fountain. Alfred was Alfred Y. Patterson.
Grave for all three are located at the Patterson Family
Cemetery, Wilkinson County, near Ivey, GA]

WILLIAM CRAVEN PATTERSON

William Craven Patterson, who was born April 5th, 1841,
in Union County was one of the five sons who enlisted and
served throughout the war in Co. D 57th Ga. Regiment,
and was honorably discharged in 1865. His skill with a
fife was such that instead of having a bugler, he was
made "Fifer" for his company. His fife was one he had
bought with the first money he made when he was a boy. At
his death, the fife was buried with him at the request of
his wife.

He was married October 23, 1867, to Elizabeth D. Cooper,
daughter of William M. Cooper, once Sheriff of Wilkinson
County, and a noted Primitive Baptist minister who served
Camp Creek Church in Baldwin County; Ramah, Mt. Carmel
and probably other churches in Wilkinson for several
years. Their children were: Sarah M., m. S.R. Brown;
Mattia A., m. L.J. Fountain; Cora I., m. A.N. Torrence;
Mary E., m. C.B. Ivey; Gattie W., Lula E., m. James
Wheeler.

Elizabeth Cooper Patterson was received by experience and
baptized May 23, 1868, at Camp Creek, Elder Scarborough,
Moderator, and William C. Patterson was received by experience
and baptized Aug. 26, 1876, Camp Creek Church, Elder Kiel, Moderator.
They were faithful members till death, he missed only three monthly
conference meetings from May, 1868, these being on
account of sickness in the family and death of two
members of the church. He never had a case in court nor
was a witness. His wife died May 13, 1899, leaving him
sad and lonely, but he ever served his Master till he was
called home April 26, 1911.

1900 US Census. William B. Patterson's birth is listed as about 1862 (William B. Patterson 26 Dec 1861 would fit) and he is listed as a farmer. No parents listed, but he is married at the time to Lousiana, had four children and had been married 20 years (probably married shortler after the 1880 US Census).

I believe the William B. Patterson in the 1900 US Census at Wilkinson County, Georgia, may be one and the same as the William B. Patterson who is next found in the 1910 US Census in Nacogdoches, Texas, married to Susan J. Simpson (married 5 Jun 1910). We can only speculate that he may have left his family, but it does appear to be the same individual. If this is accurate, William B. Patterson left his family in Georgia and moved to Texas. It is unlikely that he was only married at age 48 as listed on his marriage certificate to Susan Simpson.

A record in the 1920 US Census showed Wiliam B. Patterson and Susie Patterson living in Caddo, Louisiana. This record reports William being born in Georgia as was his father. His mother is reportedly born in Ireland. These individuals are identical to my grandparents. William's occupation was listed as a car (railroad) inspector. It is noted there was a 30 difference in William and Susan's age.

Notes from Shirley Dewberry 9 May 2011:

Hi Patrick,

Thank you for the pictures!

I think I have solved the William Bartholomew Patterson mystery!!! It was not an easy task, but I have enjoyed every minute looking for information. I read where you thought Joseph Denton Patterson was your great-grandfather and I believe he is!!!! The following appears to be the proof.

Joseph Denton Patterson married Nancy Jenkins -

1860 - Georgia - Baldwin Co. - Milledgeville

Jenkins, Thomas - 59 - Silversmith - Ireland

Jenkins, Jane - 53 - Ireland

Jenkins, Thomas - 22 - Clerk - Ireland

Jenkins, Hugh - 13 - Georgia

Patterson, Joseph - 21 - Georgia

Patterson, Nancy - 19 - Georgia (Nancy Jenkins)

Joseph Denton Patterson and Nancy Jenkins were married April 19, 1860 and he was killed in the war.

…………………….

1870 - Georgia - Baldwin Co. - Milledgeville

Date: June 20, 1870

Jenkins, Thomas - 69 - Silversmith - Ireland

Patterson, Nancy (Nancy Jenkins) - 35 - Keeping House - Ireland

Patterson, Barthlew - 6 - Georgia (William Bartholomew Patterson)

……………………….

1880 Census - Georgia - Wilkinson

Batchelor, Richard - 42

Batchelor, Nancy J. - 33 (Nancy Jenkins Patterson) I think the age of a little off….

Batchelor, Mary J. - 18 (Looks like Richard’s child by previous marriage)

Batchelor, Fannie S - 16

Batchelor, John L. - 13

Batchelor, Richard - 8

Batchelor, Minnie - 5

Batchelor, Wm. - 2

Patterson, William B. - 18 (William Bartholomew Patterson)

…………………………

(I suspected this was Wm. B. and I think you did too - correct?)

1900 Census - Georgia - Wilkinson - Bethel

Patterson, Wm. B - 39

Patterson, Louisiana - 40

Patterson, Attie - 18

Patterson, Lonnie - 15

Patterson, Tommie E. - 6

Patterson, Sidney

1910 Census - Georgia - Wilkinson - Ivey

Patterson, Lon (Louisiana) - 55 - Wd (I thought they may have divorced, but back then they probably said wd)

Patterson, Tommy - 16

Patterson, Sidney - 11

Patterson, Willie - 9

1910 - Texas - Nacogdoches

Patterson, William - Head - 48 - GA,GA,GA - Car Inspector - Railroad

……………………………….

Patterson, Vernon L - 6

Ray, Pauline - Roomer - 24- TX,TX,TX - Waitress Hotel

Ray, R. N. - 4

Ray, Wayne - 2 ?/12

……………………………………

Before I figured the puzzle out, I looked and looked. I would switch over to Rootsweb WorldConnect Project and search. Do you use their search screen?

I will try all kinds of combinations when searching for example -

Surname: Patterson

Place of Death: Wilkinson Georgia

Using this combination, I found the database: northga1 (northga and the number 1)

I looked at William Craven Patterson on this database and then clicked “Register” to see all the lines in this family.

What caught my eye was…….

Joseph Denton Patterson married Nancy Jenkins April 19, 1860 and they had a son listed as BARKALOO or Bartlew (This sounded like Bartholomew).

Then I searched the 1870 census by typing

Surname: Patterson

State: Georgia

Birth year: 1860 +/- 5 yrs.

I found Barthlew Patterson and Nancy Patterson living with her father, Thomas Jenkins which would make sense since Joseph Denton Patterson was killed in the war.

And thank goodness Nancy Jenkins Patterson was listed as born in Ireland. William B. Patterson was correct about his mother being born in Ireland!!!!

Sorry, I have jump from one thing to another, but just trying to pull it all together from my notes.

ENJOY!!!!!!

William Craven Patterson, who was born April 5th, 1841,

Patterson, William Craven Jr. (I1253)
 
1222 WILLIAM CRAVEN PATTERSON

William Patterson, the father of William Craven Patterson, Jr., was born in North Carolina, November 6, 1813, was married to Elizabeth Denton in 1835. He moved first to Union County, Georgia, living there until 1858, when he moved to Milledgeville, Ga. After living there a short time he moved to Stevens Pottery and a short time later to Wilkinson County, where he was living at the beginning of the War Between the States. He with five of his sons enlisted; and he was killed at Jonesboro, Ga., Sept. 1, 1864, his wife dying with grief in November, following.

Their children were: Mary, Joseph, John, William, Samuel, James, Nancy, Alfred, Carie, Jefferson, Silas, Eliza, Andrew, Reuben and Ivey. (Notes from Wilkinson County Georgia Historical Society).

The Battle of Jonesborough (Jonesboro), Georgia where he was killed took place August 31 - September 1, 1864. The estimated casualties were 3,149 (1,149 Union, 2,200 Confederate) when Union troops under General Sherman finally overran the weak Confederate defenses. Atlanta fell to Union troops the next day.

It is not known where William Craven Patterson, Sr. is buried, but there is a marker with William Patterson's name located in the Patterson cemetery (Baldwin Co. Georgia), reflecting he was with the 54th Georgia Infantry, which was the unit he served in. The 54th Georgia Infantry was combined into the 57th Georgia Infantry later in the war.

In October 2011, Genealogy Researcher Wes Patterson advised William C. Patterson served in the Georgia State Line, 1st Division, which was commonly referred to as Georgia Governor Joe Brown's Army. In Joe Brown's Army (Bragg, W. H. (1987). Joe Brown's Army: The Georgia State Line, 1862-1865. Macon, Ga., Mercer University Press; p.160) we find William C. Patterson listed in a supplemental ist of the Georgia State Line as part of the 1st Division. In Joe Brown's Pets (Scaife, W. R. and W. H. Bragg (2004). Joe Brown's Pets: The Georgia Militia, 1861-1865. Macon, Ga., Mercer University Press; p. 276.) which contains a complete list of members of member of the Georgia State Line, we only find a William F. Patterson listed.

The 54th Georgia Infantry Volunteers were first formed in May of 1862. They were part of General Hugh Mercer's Brigade which had carried Charleston Depot battle flags as part of General William H.T. Walker's Division. Assigned to General Patrick Cleburne's Division in late July, 1864, the brigade finally received their Cleburne/Hardee battle flags after Atlanta's fall, just prior to the Tennessee Campaign.

By 1865, the Southern armies had taken so many casualties that they were consolidating units together to maintain their ability to fight. Two such units, the 4th Battalion Sharpshooters and the 57th Regiment Georgia Infantry were joined together with the 54th Georgia Volunteers Regiment in April of 1865 in North Carolina. (Historical Flags of Our Ancestors at http://www.loeser.us/flags/civil.html.) The 54th Georgia was deployed in the coastal defense around the Savannah - Charleston area. They were involved in numerous conflicts in that area including the siege of Battery Wagner on Morris Island, South Carolina. In 1864 the 54th Georgia became a part of Mercer's Brigade and was reassigned to the Army of Tennessee in Dalton Georgia as Sherman was beginning his campaign in Georgia. They were engaged at Dalton, Rocky Face, Resaca, Adairsville, Cassville, New Hope Church, Kennesaw Mountain, Peachtree Creek, the battle of Atlanta and the battle of Jonesboro (where William Craven Patterson, Sr. was killed by sniper fire.) Under General John B. Hood, the 54th left Georgia to engage in the Tennessee Campaign. They were engaged at Franklin, Tennessee. They were deployed to Mississippi and finally back to North Carolina where they were reunited with General Joseph E. Johnston's troops and fought in the battle of Bentonville. (William A. Bowers, Jr. - 1997 at http://www.accessatc.net/~bbowers/54th.html.)

There were several Pattersons listed as part of the 54th Georgia Infantry:

A W. Patterson Residence Wilkinson County GA; Enlisted on 1/8/1864 as a Private. On 1/8/1864 he mustered into "A" Co. GA 54th Infantry. POW 11/23/1864 Gordon, GA. Released 6/16/1865 Point Lookout, MD

In December 27, 2011, the history of Wilkinson County, Georgia by Victor Davidson, in the muster rolls of Company D, 57th Regiment, Georgia volunteers, on page 414 is listed Joseph Patterson as a fourth Sgt. killed at Vicksburg on June 20, 1863. On page 416 William Patterson is noted as a musician. Sentence. This would have been William Craven Patterson Junior. On pages 597 two 598 is found a complete listing of the family members of William Craven Patterson, senior.

Notes from USgwarchives:

WILLIAM CRAVEN PATTERSON

William Patterson, the father of William Craven Patterson, was born in North Carolina, November 6, 1813, was married to Elizabeth Denton in 1835. He moved first to Union County, Georgia, living there until 1858, when he moved to Milledgeville, Ga. After living there a short time he moved to Stevens Pottery and a short time later to Wilkinson County, where he was living at the beginning of the War Between the States. He with five of his sons enlisted; and he was killed at Jonesboro, Ga., Sept. 1, 1864, his wife dying with grief in November, following.

Their children were: Mary, Joseph, John, William, Samuel, James, Nancy, Alfred, Carie, Jefferson, Silas, Eliza, Andrew, Reuben and Ivey.

William Craven Patterson [Jr.], who was born April 5th, 1841, in Union County was one of the five sons who enlisted and served throughout the war in Co. D 57th Ga., Regiment, and was honorably discharged in 1865. His skill with a fife was such that instead of having a bugler, he was made "Fifer" for his company. His fife was one he had bought with the first money he made when he was a boy. At his death, the fife was buried with him at the request of his wife.

He was married October 23, 1867, to Elizabeth D. Cooper, daughter of William M. Cooper, once Sheriff of Wilkinson County, and a noted Primitive Baptist minister who served Camp Creek Church in Baldwin County; Ramah, Mt. Carmel and probably other churches in Wilkinson for several years. Their children were: Sarah M., m. S.R. Brown; Mattia A., m. L.J. Fountain; Cora I., m. A.N. Torrence; Mary E., m. C.B. Ivey; Gattie W., Lula E., m. James Wheeler.

ceived by experience and baptized Aug. 26, 1876, Camp Creek Church, Elder Kiel, Moderator. They were faithful members till death, he missed only three monthly conference meetings from May, 1868, these being on account of sickness in the family and death of two members of the church. He never had a case in court nor was a witness. His wife died May 13, 1899, leaving him sad and lonely, but he ever served his Master till he was called home April 26, 1911.
